    Christmas Meet Up for southern GC / northern NSW - sunrise & breakfast? 16/12/2012

    I'd love to do this - anyone from other areas welcome of course. My thoughts were a nice subrise on the beach - if Mother nature will play along - and breakfast at Currumbin Surf Club, where you can sit right out over the water.

    Anyone up for it? I was thinking Sunday morning maybe second/third weekend in December? Those dates would be 8/9 or 15/16.

    Poke your lens up here and we can change the title to the chosen date (with the help of a mod ) once a date is decided on.

    I am from Alstonville and just joined. I would be happy to come and say Hi and take some photos. Sunday morning would work for me.

    Cheers

    I'm leaning to the 15th, hope this suits everyone. I'm in Tassie now until 15th Nov but look forward to a meetup, as William said we are way overdue.

    For a moment there Willy, I thought you may have started your own Bureau of Meteorology.

    Shame someone's already pinched the name.

    It's a week before I jump on a plane to Cambodia, so I think I can make it, provided I remember....

    Maybe I should ride in this time. Saves getting jealous of all the motorcyclists on the way home.

    Yes, the usual spot. Sunrise at the moment is 0443, and it gets earlier until about 21 December, so it had better be 0415-0430. I will see if I can make a booking at the surf club at Currumbin Rock for us (William - do you have to be a member to book?).

    I was going to say about booking so we make sure we have seating. I might have a couple of more old members that might join us. I will ask them and see.

    Personally, I'd prefer to be there in the grey light well before. Bring a torch

    and Caffine tablets.

    For those of us who don't know where we're supposed to be going can we post a map?

    Also, what are the tides doing about then, William, I'm expecting you to have an answer to that one!
